What do you enjoy most about your job?

It’s a challenging job that can be difficult at times but overcoming that makes the high of a success even better. That combined with the diversity of people you get to deal with makes it enjoyable.

What interests do you have outside of work?

Since the birth of my daughter my interests have changed quite dramatically. Watching rugby and drinking is now watching Sofia the first and changing nappies.

What was the last album you bought?

I bought Ed Sheeran X and Macklemore’s album around about the same time and I’m still loving both of them.

What is your favourite film?

I’d have to go with the Rocky franchise; I actually had the song played in the church at my wedding.

Name your favourite restaurant:

I don’t really have one favourite I prefer to try different ones, my wife and I do go back to Rockcliffe Hall for our anniversary every year though so probably there.

Describe your perfect weekend.

I probably should say something with my wife and daughter, but ill risk it and say a trip down to Twickenham with my mates to watch an England game and a few drinks.

Which four people (living or dead) would you most like to dine with?

Sylvester Stallone, Martin Johnson, Richard Branson and The Duke of Wellington.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

I’m a big 1 D fan; I can’t wait for my daughter to be old enough to give me an excuse to go to a concert.

Who’s the most famous person you have met?

I met Rio Ferdinand, well technically I spilt three pints of larger all over him but it still counts I think.

Tell us a fascinating fact about yourself.

I originally went to university to become a doctor.

What do you enjoy most about working for CDM?

In a results driven industry CDM has the foresight to take a longer term view and invest in the right people rather than looking for a short term fix. This makes for a great culture and atmosphere. It’s a bit of a cheesy cliché but every one genuinely gets on and it makes it a nice environment to work in.

The annual trips to Ibiza don’t hurt either.
